The Library General Description

Christ’s College Taipei is a Christian Liberal Arts College. The library was established in 1965, originally located on the third floor of the Administration Building. In 1987, the library moved to the ground floor of the James R. Graham Building. Throughout the years, the library has become an important resource and service center for the students and teachers on campus. The purpose of the library is to provide books and information needed for teaching and research.
